What is most valuable?

The search application has been the most useful. We have also liked the reporting features and dashboard capabilities.

How has it helped my organization?

We previously did not have a good centralized solution which could ingest just about any log type, which has been a plus.

What needs improvement?

The Enterprise Security app could be improved. We have had trouble with it working from the first day.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It can be expensive, especially the licensing costs. However, there is added value in what it can do, not just log aggregation.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Years ago, we did use another solution, but I am not sure it exists any longer. We have been using Splunk for many years.

What other advice do I have?

It is a great product overall. I would like to see improvements on the Enterprise Security app/SIEM functionality.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Trustwave and QRadar.
